Hb Fannin-Lubbock beta119(GH2)Gly->Asp
CONTACT External; alpha1beta1 contact
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A separate at alkaline pH; Hb X moves faster than Hb A
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A separate on a DEAE-Sephadex column
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-beta chain; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis; sequencing
DNA ANALYSES In a recent paper (Ref. 3) five Spanish families with Hb Fannin-Lubbock are described; in all instances two nucleotide changes were observed: GGC->GAC at codon 119 (Gly->Asp) and GTC->CTG at codon 111 (Val->Leu)
OCCURRENCE Found in members of two Mexican-American families, and in five Spanish families
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in heterozygotes 45-50%
